Stockton-on-Tees Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Stockton-on-Tees where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Stockton-on-Tees?
The price of getting a skip in Stockton-on-Tees is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What things can I put in my skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using your skip for heavy building wastes including stone or garden soil, the maximum size you can get is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
Can you deliver skips across Durham?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Stockton-on-Tees, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Durham. Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Stockton-on-Tees, Seaham or Peterlee, we have got you covered.
If I need a skip on a road in Stockton-on-Tees, will I need to get a permit?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you have got to receive permission from the local council in Stockton-on-Tees, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for your road permit, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
How long does it take to get a skip in Stockton-on-Tees?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Is it ok to load up the skip higher than the top?
You must not load a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.

What is a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are ideal for an array of residential and commercial jobs. They are the biggest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as dirt, stone and concrete.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant amounts of waste.
Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like printers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and computer monitors. Electrical products can’t be thrown in your skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection time when placing your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you need it located, we are able to manage it all.
When you are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be located at a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
